It was a lecture for a college class

2018-09-19 22:15:52 UTC  

My speech on immigration will be explicit

2018-09-19 22:16:39 UTC  

I have to write a paper on the Israel vs Arab conflict. I get to choose a side and I'm gonna go wild.

2018-09-19 22:23:44 UTC  

Throw a wrench into the discussion by writing it about the Coptic Christians

2018-09-19 22:24:19 UTC  

Eh not too much Coptics. I may talk about Assyrians Catholics though.

2018-09-19 22:24:47 UTC  

The Coptic Orthodox Christians are the ones caught in the middle of it all and murdered by both sides.

2018-09-19 22:24:52 UTC  

Coptics are only prevalent in Alexandria, Armenia and Ethiopia.

2018-09-19 22:24:59 UTC  

Assyrians are the one's caught in the middle.

2018-09-19 22:25:15 UTC  

A lot of them fled to Michigan a while ago because of it.

2018-09-19 22:26:04 UTC  

I can assure you we protected and provided safe haven to many in Iraq while I was there. They're all over the M.E.

2018-09-19 22:26:25 UTC  

@NateDahl76 dude that is almost normie friendly

2018-09-19 22:26:38 UTC  

I think the title could be a little softer

2018-09-19 22:27:04 UTC  

A lot of nonchristian ME's came to MI too <:teehee:381917632359563264>

2018-09-19 22:27:21 UTC  

Eh, they may be a minority but if I'm not mistaken the prevalent group in Iraq is Catholics of the Assyrian rite.

2018-09-19 22:27:43 UTC  

That was the group that went from 19% of Iraq's population to 3% with ISIS.

2018-09-19 22:27:58 UTC  

@Trashboat Dearborn must go.

2018-09-19 22:28:47 UTC  

It sure doesn't look like any other city thats for sure

2018-09-19 22:29:07 UTC  

@Phillip Wiglesworth - FL here. They're called Chaldeans. They're all over Michigan.

2018-09-19 22:30:32 UTC  

*nods* We have quite a few here in Florida, too. They even opened their own church right here in my town (Tallahassee).

2018-09-19 22:30:46 UTC  

(the Coptics, I mean)

2018-09-19 22:31:33 UTC  

@Procella Eques yeah man it’s pretty impressive

2018-09-19 22:35:31 UTC  

I'm messaging it to some facebook friends

2018-09-19 22:35:44 UTC  

I don't think its quite facebook post but its message worthy certainly

2018-09-19 22:42:00 UTC  

It’s pretty good. Dude has solid enough optics and demeanor that the poster thought he was the professor. Glad I shared it on here

2018-09-19 23:01:53 UTC  

How often do you guys buy groceries?

2018-09-19 23:02:16 UTC  

I just moved into an apartment alone and I'm figuring out how to do life

2018-09-19 23:02:40 UTC  

Short answer: as often as you need to

2018-09-19 23:03:30 UTC  

I guess the amount of trips I make isn't particularly important as long as I stay within budget, right?

2018-09-19 23:03:43 UTC  

Me? My waifu does the shopping, usually once a week if you buy a few gallons of milk or whatever you use the most

2018-09-19 23:03:54 UTC  

I keep realizing I forgot to buy something

2018-09-19 23:04:21 UTC  

For example, I just realized I don't have a potato masher or a strainer

2018-09-19 23:04:42 UTC  

Oh, like pots, pans, and utensils?

2018-09-19 23:04:55 UTC  

At least you only have to get them once

2018-09-19 23:05:21 UTC  

whenever you buy something, think: do I have the stuff to make this?

2018-09-19 23:05:22 UTC  

I was trying to hold off on grocery shopping until Friday but this stuff is kinda important. Yes, kitchen stuff, but if I'm gonna go make a trip I might as well do next weeks groceries.

2018-09-19 23:08:09 UTC  

Potato smasher, lol. Making your own mashed potatoes?

2018-09-19 23:08:35 UTC  

Well, no, because I'm on keto, but mashed cauliflower

2018-09-19 23:09:12 UTC  

That's why I didn't think about getting it earlier. I bought cauliflower, but a few days later I realized you can mash it like potatoes. It's really good, I did it with a fork yesterday.

2018-09-19 23:09:39 UTC  

@Jacob I go grocery shopping almost every day after work, since it's extremely convenient for me to do so (store is next to my shop), and since I'm on a motorcycle it helps me be very picky and restrictive on what I buy. I know exactly how much/what I can pack in my bags to get home, and it prevents impulse buying. I also generally stick to just getting stuff on sale (BOGO), and that's what'll be for dinner for the next night or two.

2018-09-19 23:10:13 UTC  

I have a store near by, too, but it WinCo is 1 hour 30 minutes away

2018-09-19 23:10:38 UTC  

The stores near me aren't particularly bad (except Safeway, which is a rip off), it's just that WinCo has both an amazing selection and amazing prices
